Entry-level writer wanted for women's website

The Jane Dough, a website providing news, insight and commentary on women in the business world, is seeking applicants for an entry-level writing position in its New York City newsroom. The ideal candidate is a recent college grad or career-changer looking for hands-on writing experience at a news startup.

The main qualification for this job is an interest and some strong opinions about the intersections of women and business and women and politics. Do you devour Forbes' list of the most powerful women, but wonder why more ladies aren't featured on Forbes "regular" most powerful lists? Are you ticked off by the fact that more women aren't founding as many tech startups and aren't making as money much on Wall Street? Would you like to opine on the latest words uttered by Arianna Huffington, Sheryl Sandberg or Indra Nooyi? Sounds like you'll fit right in.

The secondary qualification is being able to write quickly and clearly on topics that you yourself think up/discover through the news cycle.

We'll ask you to scour the web, the airwaves, and the pages of print publications for striking and original stories that highlight and raise questions about women in business or politics through the female prism.
In exchange, we promise you'll earn many, many bylines.

The logistics:

• Applicant must be able to commute to our SoHo offices daily (or willing to relocate).
• This is a full-time position.
• Must be willing to work some weekend hours.

How to apply:
If interested, please attach ALL of the following documents to your application email to amy[at]thejanedough.com:
• A resume/CV, including references
• Any three samples of your academic or journalistic writing, each preferably in a different style (long-form vs. short-form, magazine vs. blog, etc.)
• A brief (one-page) cover letter explaining why your experience, knowledge, and personality make you the ideal intern for our site.
